NASA: global warming not to blame for ice melt

More proof the far left have no clue what they are talking about. Global warming can not be blamed for everything wrong with the world.

NASA Sees Arctic Ocean Circulation Do an About-Face

A team of NASA and university scientists has detected an ongoing reversal in Arctic Ocean circulation triggered by atmospheric circulation changes that vary on decade-long time scales. The results suggest not all the large changes seen in Arctic climate in recent years are a result of long-term trends associated with global warming.

“Our study confirms many changes seen in upper Arctic Ocean circulation in the 1990s were mostly decadal in nature, rather than trends caused by global warming,” said Morison.

“While some 1990s climate trends, such as declines in Arctic sea ice extent, have continued, these results suggest at least for the ‘wet’ part of the Arctic — the Arctic Ocean — circulation reverted to conditions like those prevalent before the 1990s,” he added.

This is especially funny to me, because recently one of my environmentalist friends just rambled off some global warming stats from NASA. I wonder what he will say after I print this out for him.
